Answer: It sounds like an ornamental plum, commonly called purple leaf plum (Prunus Cerasifera). Purple leaf plum is a small deciduous tree commonly planted for its deep reddish-purple leaves and white/pale pink flowers that are among the first to appear in spring. Although it is short lived, (about 20 years) it is fast growing and great for use as a specimen or shade tree. Hope this answers all your questions!
